Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, is a type of therapy that focuses on current problems and symptoms. It is a problem focused and action oriented approach to psychotherapy that involves a collaborative relationship between the child and therapist. The child and therapist actively work together to identify problems, set goals, and develop a plan that will help the child manage the symptoms and build the new skills necessary to prevent future challenges. CBT is a gradual process in which children take active steps toward change and usually consists of 6-12 sessions.
